light, weizen



Siard is a wheat beer of the Weizen type. It is a specific type of top-fermented beer, which is gaining more and more recognition in the Czech Republic.

This type of beer comes from Bavaria and Upper Austria. Its typical freshness and lightness is perfect for the warm summer season. Weizen top yeasts give Siard a strong banana and clove aroma. The beer has a lower bitterness. It is quite light and the color is brought out by the dispersed yeast.

The properties of this Weizen are guaranteed by the Pale ale malt type from the floor maltings Bernard in Rajhrad and the wheat malt from the Weyermann maltings in Germany which makes up more than half of the malt used for this beer. Hop varieties Žatecký poloranný červeňák and Hallertauer Mittelfruh give the beer a light bitterness and a pleasant hoppy to floral aroma. All this is complemented by the above-mentioned properties of Bavarian yeast. When serving, placing a slice of lemon in the glass is recommended.

Výčepní svrchně kvašené


CASPARUS 10 je světlé, desetistupňové svrchně kvašené pivo typu pale ale.

Tedy American Pale Ale je v podstatě slabší varianta amerických piv India Pale Ale (I.P.A.). Při použití kombinace žateckého chmele Kazbek a amerického chmele Azacca je výsledkem půvabná a svěží kombinace chmelových, až zemitých tónů a tropického ovoce,zvláště manga.  Pivo bylo konstruováno k příležitosti želivské Mariánské pouti.

Je veselé, optimistické a osvěžující.

Svrchně kvašený ležák


  Pšeničné pivo typu weizen bier. Jde o specifický typ piva svrchního kvašení, které si v Čechách získává stále více přiznivců.


  Pochází z oblasti Bavorska a Horního Rakouska. Svěžest a lehkost se nabízí právě pro teplé letní období. „Weizenovské“ svrchní kvasnice dodávají výrazné banánové a hřebíčkové aroma. Pivo má nižší hořkost. Je dosti světlé a má vyšší kvasničný zákal. 


  Slad pale ale ze sladovny Bernard Rajhrad a nadpoloviční sypání pšeničného sladu ze sladovny Weyermann zaručují požadované vlastnosti našeho weizenu. Žatecký poloranný červeňák a německý chmel Hallertauer Mittelfruh dodávají lehkou hořkost a příjemné chmelové až květinové aroma. Vše korunují již zmíněné vlastnosti bavorských kvasnic. Při podávání doporučujeme vložit do sklenice plátek citronu.

dark, weizen type 


Questenberg is a dark wheat beer with a strong, full body, brewed according to the best Bavarian traditions.

Top fermentation with a specific strain of yeast gives this beer a characteristic clove and banana aroma. Its slight “weizen” acidity is diminished by chocolate and caramel taste and aroma.

The final effect of Questenberg beer is achieved by the selection of malt: barley pale ale type malt from the Bernard floor maltings in Rajhrad, special barley and wheat malts from the Weyermann maltings in Germany and, last but not least, unmalted wheat. The share of wheat to barley is 48%. The hops used are balanced and light, with the Sládek and Žatecký poloranný červeňák varieties used in this beer, as well as the German Hallertauer Mittelfruh and Callista varieties.

This beer can be recommended to accompany both dark meats and sweet cuisine.

I.P.A. 15




  For having “fifteen degrees”, it is a light beer with a noble colour (amber), high bitterness and a wide range of aromas ranging from resin to citrus to forest fruit. Everything is rounded off by the specific aroma of American top fermenting yeast. Rye is used here in the form of light and roasted malt and unmalted rye to lighten the body.
  Ale barley malt - Bernard Rajhrad malt house. The grist is completed by a pinch of semi-dark and dark malts - again from the Weyermann malt house. The bitterness and aroma are taken care of by the American hop varieties Simcoe, Chinook and Sorachi Ace.
   This beer has its origin in the USA, where the local brewmasters offer it in a plethora of variants.

Vitus 14

A historical receipe


  The uniqueness of this beer brewed in the monastery brewery in Želiv is given by the historical recipe from 1626. It is an attempt to get as close as possible to historical beers. Indeed, the result is well worth a taste. In the old days, they often used cheaper wheat malt, which was dried using an open fire and was therefore slightly smoked. In days of yore, they also added herbs, spices and other similar additives to the beer.
  Thanks to the knowledge and art of our brewmaster, Jiří Kratochvíl, you can now carry away a harmony of flavours. In addition to the subtly smoked malt and hop components, you will taste fruity tones in the background with an earthiness and pleasant bitterness from sweet flag and wormwood.

Falco 14

Dortmunder schwartzbier, bottom-fermente, ddark


Falco is a dark special beer of the Dortmunder schwartzbier type. It is brewed using a double decoction mash method. This beer is characterized by a rich, full taste and a strong aroma of roasted malts. Compared to the usual, ordinary Czech dark beers, Falco tastes strongly of hops and has medium to lower sharpness.

Typical of this dark special is the dry coffee taste with a hint of dried stone fruits. The coffee aroma lingers as an aftertaste for a long time.

The basic ingredients of the recipe are a Czech type malt from the Bernard floor maltings in Rajhrad, a Bavarian type malt from the Soufflet maltings in Prostějov and caramel and colored malts from the Weyermann maltings in Germany. Sládek and Žatecký poloranný červeňák hop varieties are used for hopping. Falco is a bottom-fermented beer.
